DECATUR, Texas, June 1, 2022 – In response to the turmoil, destruction and extreme hardship caused by the ongoing war in Ukraine, the team at Twisted X® is proud to partner with Soles4Souls, The UPS Foundation and Suddath to donate footwear in support of relief and recovery efforts for those most in need.   

Twisted X®, a Twisted X Global Brands company, supplied more than 16,000 pairs of men’s, women’s and youth footwear, a retail value of $1.3M to Soles4Souls. Product donations are sorted by Soles4Souls and transported to vetted nonprofit organizations on the ground to ensure entire communities have access to the essential items. The donation was made in collaboration with The UPS Foundation, which donated shipping costs and resources to aid in the distribution efforts.  

“At Twisted X, compassion is a core philosophy of our brand DNA, and we feel we have a responsibility as a business and as humans to help those in need,” said Prasad Reddy, CEO of Twisted X. “We believe in fostering a world that gives back, and we are proud to come together to restore even a small sense of normalcy in times of disaster.”   

Since 2005, Twisted X® has created comfortable handcrafted footwear collections in western, work, outdoor, and lifestyle categories. The humanitarian-focused footwear brand takes a holistic approach to its commitment to sustainability, philanthropy and partnerships. 

“Soles4Souls has a long history of responding in times of crisis, and what’s happening in Ukraine and to its people is absolutely devastating,” said Buddy Teaster, president and CEO of Soles4Souls. “We are proud to work with Twisted X and The UPS Foundation to provide direct relief to those forced from their homes and cities. Providing essentials like footwear and clothing is critical as families fled with almost nothing.”
